Our Teaching Philosophy

At St. Andrews Sukhumvit (S107), we are driven by the belief that children learn best through hands-on experiences, in an environment where they are active participants in their learning. Teachers in our international primary school are not only well-trained and highly experienced but also passionate about being part of children’s learning and development.

We are an IB World school accredited by the CfBT Education Trust (Centre for British Teaching) and the IBO (International Baccalaureate Organization). Our school has been granted the CIE Centre (University of Cambridge International Examinations) status, and we are likewise licensed by the Thai Ministry of Education and accredited through ONESQA (Sor mor Sor) the international schools inspection body.

As an inclusive school, we assess each child upon entry to ensure we are well equipped to meet their learning needs. We implement a rolling admissions schedule: we welcome young learners at any point during the school year as long as they fulfil our assessment criteria and sufficient space is available.

Collaborative learning forms the core of the St. Andrews Sukhumvit (S107) curriculum, and we integrate it in our school activities to aid in refining skills that contribute to children’s academic, personal, and emotional development. We also integrate various activities that are proven to promote socio-emotional development into their classes to ensure their holistic development. In addition, we provide relevant supplementary services such as student counselling.

Highly-Qualified Educators

All classes in our primary school are taught by qualified international teachers who are supported by teaching assistants to ensure children’s continuous progress. Most of our teaching staff come from the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. They all hold UK-recognised teaching degrees and many of them have earned a Masteral degree.

They are experts at leading children through the learning process and they plan core subjects in mathematics, literacy, science, arts, and social studies, including geography and history. We also offer specialist teaching classes in music, art, physical education (including swimming), design and technology, and world languages.

Caring Community

In our school, we recognise the incredible potential of each child. Consistent with this, we adopt an inclusive approach that accommodates children’s distinct learning needs and styles.

As an authentic international primary school, we take great pride in our community’s diversity. One of the ways we honour this is by celebrating important cultural events from different parts of the globe. In line with our dedication to inclusivity, we organise activities for all members of our school community, such as the popular International Day.

In spite of our expansive grounds, our primary international school in Bangkok has small student cohorts and a small community atmosphere. To provide close supervision and ample support to each student, we limit classes to 16-18 children per class (with two teaching assistants) in Nursery to Reception. For years 1 to 4, there are 20-22 children per class (with one teaching assistant). For Years 5-6, there are 20-22 children per class (with one teaching assistant).

In our school, children’s relationships with others are top priority, and we proactively ensure that meaningful links are constantly being forged between our school and their home. Behind this is our strong belief in the value of each child’s family support and home experiences when it comes to their holistic development.

Top-Grade School Facilities

Our school features top-level facilities to support children’s optimal learning. Our world-class campus features the following amenities:

  • over 36,000 sqm of extensive and modern facilities

The canteen provides nutritious morning snacks and a buffet lunch (options include Thai, Western, and vegetarian dishes, along with a salad bar, Asian noodle soup, and fresh fruits for dessert).

Learning Outside the Classroom

We believe that learning should not end within the walls of the classroom.

Our vast green campus has extensive natural spaces that are extensively used for various outdoor learning activities. We also encourage the children to take part in a wide range of extra-curricular activities that can broaden their experiences—from the arts, to sports, and academics.

We incorporate experiential learning through relevant class trips and community action. Beginning Year 3 onwards, children participate in annual Residential trips, which help deepen their learning and develop their independence, teamwork, eco-awareness, and responsibility towards the environment.

We take great pride in the fact that our graduates went on to top colleges and universities such as:

  • Harvard University

  • The University of Liverpool

  • Seoul National University

  • University of Toronto

  • King’s College London

  • The University of Sydney

  • The University of Tokyo

  • and more

Our highly competent teaching staff use a number of proven teaching methods and strategies to cater to children’s diversified learning requirements. We design learning activities that allow children to learn either on their own, together with their peers (in big or small groups), or altogether as a class. As a result, while learning academics, they’re able to improve their communication and collaboration, two of the most crucial skills in the 21st century.
